Docker commit error: Error processing tar file(exit status 1): chmod /opt:permission denied

To whom it may concern,

I have been working with docker for about a year.

I have multiple small applications running in Docker containers.

I have never had trouble committing changes to my docker image in the past.

But, just recently, when I attempted to commit my latest updates to the container, I am getting an error message:

“Error response from daemon: Error processing tar file(exit status 1): chmod /opt: permission denied”

Any ideas?

Has anyone seen this before?

Is there anyone on this thread that could assist with this?

I really need to get this fixed.

I can not save / commit any of my containers at this point.

I do not believe that it relates to anything inside of the containers.

Because it is currently affecting all of my containers.

Does anyone have any recommendations?
